Hi All,

In Windows 7 (and Windows 2008) we have noticed a new box in the task scheduler that says "do not store password, task will only have access to local resources' and this box ix checked by default.

Are you in the habbit of checking this for tasks?  For example, a Windows 7 laptop running a Syncback profile to backup data has been setup and by default the scheduled task Syncback creates has this box checked.  However, Syncback support doesn't really say much on the issue except to check with Microsoft, and we haven't been able to produce much useful info on the check box and when to use it and when not to.
